Although our conference will be hosted online, we still reside on and are using material resources that come from unceded lands and territories. We acknowledge the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee resides on traditional Potawatomi, Ho-Chunk and Menominee homelands along the southwest shores of Michigami, North America’s largest system of freshwater lakes, where the Milwaukee, Menominee and Kinnickinnic rivers meet and the people of Wisconsin’s sovereign Anishinaabe, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Oneida and Mohican nations remain present.

Land acknowledgments serve as a starting point for education and advocacy. Learn more about this land acknowledgement through UWM’s Electa Quinney Institute and visit the Indigenous Game Developers website for more information about Indigenous scholars, activists, and game makers.

We also appreciate the generosity of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee English Department, Anthropology Department, and Center for 21st Century Studies for their continued support of our work.
